1THE BASIC RULES OF SAFE FIREARMS HANDLINGLEARN THE MECHANICAL AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FIREARM YOU AREUSING.Not all firearms are the same. The method of carrying and handling firearms varies in accordance with themechanical provisions for avoiding accidental discharge and the various proper procedures for loading andunloading. No person should handle any firearm without first having thoroughly familiarized himself with theparticular type of firearm he is using, and with safe gun handling in general.2. ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION.Be sure of the bullet stop behind your target, even when dry-firing. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point atany part of your body or at another person. This is particularly important when loading or unloading a firearm.In the event of an accidental discharge, no injury can occur as long as the muzzle is pointing in a safedirection. A safe direction means a direction which will not permit a discharged bullet to strike a person, or tostrike an object from which the bullet may ricochet. A safe direction must take into account the fact that abullet may penetrate a wall, ceiling, floor window, etc., and strike a person or damage property. Make it ahabit to know exactly where the muzzle of your gun is pointing whenever you handle it, and be sure that yourare always in control of the direction in which the muzzle is pointing, even if you fall or stumble. Keep youfinger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.

Exposureto shooting noise can damage hearing and adequate eye protection when shooting is essential.7. NEVER CLIMB A TREE OR FENCE WITH A LOADED FIREARM.Put the firearm down carefully before climbing a fence, and unload it before climbing or descending a tree or jumping over a ditch or other obstruction. Never pull or push a loaded firearm toward yourself or antherperson. When in doubt, or whenever you are about to do anything awkward, unload your gun.8.
